First up...a little sneak peek. While making the "2009 Designer Mystery Block of the Month" from FatQuarterShop, I made a second set of blocks using my red, white and blue Minick & Simpson scraps. I used mostly Prairie Paisley, with some American Primer, and a little bit of Bar Harbor added in (actually, there is even some Nantucket in this quilt too). I challenged myself to use only fabrics in my stash for this quilt, and I was able to do it (although it got a little tough at the end piecing the back from the smaller pieces that were left--luckily I cut my binding strips first). I spent some time on Memorial Day setting the blocks together, and I'm hoping to share this quilt again, quilted and bound, for the 4th of July!
FatQuarterShop the $50 gift certificate goes to Cindy of Hyacinth Quilt Designs from my blog.
